😃❤ Small Business is good for small towns! 😃❤
💫The following article gives good reason why we need to support and nurture our small businesses.
•Benefiting the Local Community....
This is the last of the series, and I think it’s the most important. Small town businesses benefit their local community.
It’s not hard to see that locally-owned small businesses in small towns have a focus on their local community. My feeling is that small town people start out more focused on our local community than people who live in suburbs or big, loose metropolitan areas. When you start a business in your small town, you don’t forget about your community; you support it. You donate to local causes, just like you did before. You volunteer at local events, like you did before you had a business. You participate in local issues, just like before. And if your business prospers, you have more money for all those activities. When you need help, you hire local people. You buy from local suppliers, and you contract with local services. That adds up to a lot of community benefit.
But you don’t have to believe my speculative thinking. Let’s go to the research.
•Charles M. Tolbert, Baylor University, looked at the effects of small business on their local community. His research shows that locally-owned business establishments are associated statistically with some benefits that might make your jaw drop:
higher average income levels
less income inequality
lower poverty levels
less juvenile delinquency
lower levels of obesity
lower levels of diabetes
Larger businesses were not associated with these benefits.
Tolbert said that business owners are a local independent middle class, vested in the locality, embedded in the community, and acting as stakeholders. He speculated that the entrepreneurial culture may be associated with better investment in health care facilities, recruitment of physicians, and a better social environment. What he’s trying to say is that local business owners care about their community. I agree.
